Turmeric Baked Oats
For a warm and comforting start to the day that’s healthy and easy to make, look no further than this turmeric baked oats recipe using Schwartz Turmeric. Rich and full of nourishment, it’ll keep you going all day long and adds health-benefiting turmeric to your diet. It’s also suitable for vegans, gluten free (just substitute in gluten free oats) and contains no refined sugar.
Turmeric has plenty of proven benefits as a great anti-oxidant with anti-inflammatory effects (it’s main compound curcumin is the real hero), with studies showing it decreases ageing of the skin (and other chronic diseases), decreases risk of heart disease and improves in arthritis pain.
But it’s not just about the health benefits, Schwartz Turmeric adds a warming spice along with sweet vanilla and transforms simple baked oats into your favourite go-to breakfast.
These oats will last for up to a week in the fridge (in an air tight container), so feel free to bulk up the volumes and set yourself (or your household) up for the whole week!
